PineBridge Global Focus Equity Fund

  • The Fund invests primarily in equity and equity-related securities in global markets and may be exposed to additional risks (e.g. equity, market volatility, portfolio concentration, country selection, Eurozone debt crisis and investment in Russia risks, etc).
  • The Fund may use financial derivative instruments (“FDI”) for efficient portfolio management (including hedging) purposes only but will not use FDI extensively for any purpose. The use of FDI may expose the Fund to various risks such as counterparty, liquidity, correlation, credit, volatility, valuation and settlement risks.
  • Dividends, if any, may be paid out of capital of the Fund at the discretion of the Manager. This amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment and may result in an immediate decrease in the net asset value of the Fund.
  • Investors may be subject to substantial losses due to investment loss risk and the leveraging effect of using FDI.
  • Investors should not rely solely on this material to make investment decisions.

Unless otherwise noted, all information is sourced from PineBridge Investments internal data.

PineBridge Global Focus Equity Fund (the “Fund”) is a sub-fund of PineBridge Global Funds, an Irish domiciled UCITS umbrella fund, authorized and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. PineBridge Investments is a group of international companies that provide investment advice and market asset management products and services to clients around the world.

Material change to the Fund: From inception, the benchmark of the Fund was the MSCI All Country World Daily Total Return Net Index. On 1 March 2011, the benchmark of the Fund was changed to MSCI World Index Daily Total Return Net Index. Such change was made because such benchmark was considered more reflective of the Fund's investment strategy and it had become the industry standard for the relevant exposure. From 10 February 2014 to 26 October 2016, the benchmark of the Fund was changed to the MSCI All Country World Index (ACWI) as it was more reflective of the Fund's investment strategy and country allocation and in particular, it includes exposure to emerging markets. With effect from 27 October 2016, the benchmark of the Fund was changed to MSCI All Country World Index (ACWI) Daily Total Return Net because the Investment Managers of the Fund reasonably consider that such benchmark is more reflective of the Fund’s investment strategy than the previous benchmark. On 19 February 2013, PineBridge Investments Europe Limited was appointed as co-investment manager to manage the Fund in tandem with the existing investment manager, PineBridge Investments LLC.

Readership: This document is intended solely for the addressee(s) and may not be redistributed without the prior permission of PineBridge Investments. Its content may be confidential, proprietary, and/or trade secret information. PineBridge Investments and its subsidiaries are not responsible for any unlawful distribution of this document to any third parties, in whole or in part.

Opinions: Any opinions expressed in this document represent the views of the manager, are valid only as of the date indicated, and are subject to change without notice. There can be no guarantee that any of the opinions expressed in this document or any underlying position will be maintained at the time of this presentation or thereafter. We are not soliciting or recommending any action based on this material.

Risk Warning: All investments involve risk, including possible loss of principal. If applicable, the offering document should be read for further details including the risk factors. Our investment management services relate to a variety of investments, each of which can fluctuate in value. The investment risks vary between different types of instruments. For example, for investments involving exposure to a currency other than that in which the portfolio is denominated, changes in the rate of exchange may cause the value of investments, and consequently the value of the portfolio, to go up or down. In the case of a higher volatility portfolio, the loss on realization or cancellation may be very high (including total loss of investment), as the value of such an investment may fall suddenly and substantially. In making an investment decision, prospective investors must rely on their own examination of the merits and risks involved.

Performance Notes: Past performance is not indicative of future results. There can be no assurance that any investment objective will be met. PineBridge Investments often uses benchmarks for the purpose of comparison of results. Benchmarks are used for illustrative purposes only, and any such references should not be understood to mean there would necessarily be a correlation between investment returns of any investment and any benchmark. Any referenced benchmark does not reflect fees and expenses associated with the active management of an investment. PineBridge Investments may, from time to time, show the efficacy of its strategies or communicate general industry views via modeling. Such methods are intended to show only an expected range of possible investment outcomes, and should not be viewed as a guide to future performance. There is no assurance that any returns can be achieved, that the strategy will be successful or profitable for any investor, or that any industry views will come to pass. Actual investors may experience different results.
